My Girl

My Girl

Anna Chlumsky is brilliant from start to finish, she really grabs your attention with her hypochondria and bossiness and general excellent confidence that hides an underlying fear about death and the role she plays in her family. And with the rest of the cast doing an equally good job, there’s very little to complain about with this one. I didn’t know they had made a sequel and I’m curious to see how that one plays out!

Under Siege

Under Siege

My word, what is this film? It feels like it desperately wanted to be Die Hard on a boat but it fails at almost every turn. Seagal has almost no expression or chemistry or maybe even acting ability, and teamed up with Eleniak… well, it’s not a relationship that is going to go far.

A League of Their Own

A League of Their Own

It took me a long time to get round to watching this film, despite the fact Mr C has been saying how good it is for many years. I think it might be because Madonna is in it, and, for whatever reason, that was putting me off. Never mind though, because I’ve watched it now and oh my god, I loved it. I really think it has shot up to be one of my favourite films. The women are all brilliant, the relationships interesting, the situation stressful and competitive and sporting and sad and overwhelming all in equal measure.

Batman Returns

Batman Returns

I said it above in the notes but it bears repeating: What the hell is this film? How is it by the same people as the last one? They took the comic feel and ran with it so badly that none of it makes any sense and it is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous. My biggest complaint with the film is that for a Batman movie, there is very little Batman. He’s barely in it in the first half an hour, and he’s very slow to react to all the emergencies.

My Cousin Vinny

My Cousin Vinny

I was kind of just enjoying this film as a 90s comedy movie where Joe Pesci does what he does. But as it wore on and Marisa Tomei got more and more awesome, I really fell in love with it. A good courtroom fight is always fun, and this had twists and turns along the way. But Marisa won the day and did so in great style.
